    Hey Kam,

    Looking at getting a set of cosmis s1. I'm hoping to run 18x9.5 front and 10.5 rear.
    My S14 has 345mm brakes on the front with evo calipers - any ideas whether these will fit without spacers? I don't have a huge amount of room to space them as I'm running stock rolled wings rather than wider fibreglass ones.

    Cheers
    Joe

    Evo calipers are horrendous for clearance, but that disc size might leave them far enough outside where the wheels are most concave.
    I can't say for sure, but you're welcome to purchase a single wheel and try it for clearance.

    You can return it providing it's not damaged etc...

    Cheers for the advice - thought they might be just about big enough to get away with it but will have to see. I'll give you guys a shout when I need a wheel!
    Out of interest, do you know if any of the rota GTR/GTR-D fit straight over this brake setup? Thanks!

    GTR-D aren't good, they're reverse mount. You'll be close with that, 356mm won't work for example.
    Again, you're welcome to buy and try one.

    GTR would be the save option, bags of clearance.
